Tatu City awards residential infrastructure contract to Stecol Corporation
Roads, water and sewerage for Kijani Ridge homeowners commences construction
Global engineering and construction group Stecol Corporation has been appointed as the lead infrastructure contractor at the residential enclave of Kijani Ridge in Tatu City.
Under the multi-million shilling contract, Stecol will complete the construction of Kijani Ridge infrastructure, including roads, water, sewage, street lighting and storm water management. Work has already started and is expected to be completed by early Q2 2019.
“We completed a highly competitive vetting process, and Stecol was selected largely due to its capacity to deliver on mega projects, as well as its good reputation around the globe,” said Nick Langford, Kenya Country Head for Rendeavour, the owner and developer of Tatu City. “Our agreement with Stecol demonstrates our commitment to fast tracking infrastructure construction at Tatu City and delivering global standards. We are also delighted that the local community will benefit from employment by Stecol.”
A Stecol representative outlined the company’s plan, saying it would ensure that construction work is completed within the allocated time.
“We are excited to start our second infrastructure project at Tatu City and have already commenced work. Stecol has been in the Kenyan market for many years, and we are happy that a visionary new city builder such as Tatu City has chosen us. Our previous work is proof of our capability to deliver to the highest standards,” said the representative.
Stecol Corporation completed national infrastructure projects in Kenya such as the Thika Super Highway and the Outer-Ring Road. Other projects include delivery of urban infrastructure, industrial and civil buildings and electro-mechanic and pipeline works across Kenya and around the world.
